Don't believe I've ever been to an armory for any reason, let alone dancing. I grew up, and as an adult still am, a suburbanite, so maybe that is why.
not aware of too many armories in the suburbs. At least, not in my neck of the woods. Rightly or wrongly, I always think of an armory as more of an urban thing!

Hey FB--do you know the Bay Area, like Rasta and a few others round here? They were often in distant towns, that were swallowed up by suburbia...EG, Walnut Creek, a classic suburb in the E Bay, had one in the downtown area, as they were always associated with civic land, and eventually, they are turned into "other things" but in the 50s-60s, early 70s, they were a bldg with a big aud, and had many a dance...ord & such stored nearby, and/or in the basement. So, you'd be surprised where they were originally, as long as your suburb started out as a small town way back when...
